I'm impressed!

I have managed to keep going for 10 days! And I'm enjoying it! It feels nice to be crafting and posting and feeling like I'm doing something. I even posted on the  blog-a-thon thread on uks and had some visitors and  comments. Thank you!! It was lovely to see what other crafters are doing and to comment myself. Never seem to have time for that either. So my daily to do is visit at least one blog a day and say hello!

A layout!

Woohoo! A layout! The pictures are a couple of years old and been in my "to be scrapped" pile for ages.  Emma still loves cheesestrings  (Urghh!) and still plays with them when she eats them  (again Urghh!) I thought I'd keep the page pale and pastel with a cute rainbow die cut which is just like her lovely hoodie. Don't you hate when they grow out of something gorgeous?? I loved that top!!

Another birthday wish for a sis!

So this is the last of my May family birthdays. But Junes coming and I have plenty to do for that too! So this is another working with the same theme but different design. they are all quite simple which means I've managed to get a few done over the last few days. Work has kept me busy so it's been good to get on with a few and have a week off too! Hope you've been lucky too! xx

Springy colours

I don't know why but these colours feel very spring like! I love turquoise and lilac together- it's a really uplifting colour combo. How's your half term? Yesterday was rubbish for weather, but we managed to move the guinea pig hutch so that it has a second one sitting next to it on a raised area.The next part of the plan is to put a new piggy in there and let Gerge hear the scuffling about. We need to quarantine for two weeks before we can introduce them. Hopefully George will enjoy his new company. Piccies when we have newbies(Looking like we'll get two!

A birthday wish for my sis!

Well I didn't make it on yesterday because my temperamental wifi was doing it's "computer says no" thing, and because we spent the day at Madame Tussuad's! This is a card for my lovely sister, told you it was busy month for cards!!
Met this handsome chap! (Please ignore the right side of the picture- don't pose very often! You can see why!) Was super busy as it was a bank hol, but quite fun. Got some lovely pics for scrapping too! Hope you are having a happy half term!

Mickey Memories

It doesn't feel like a whole year since we went to DLP but it is! I scrapped this photo last week. The title is a pun as opposed to rubbish spelling, seeing as Ariel combs her hair with a fork! So no trip planned this week but we all have the week off! Yay! So the merlin passes may get used this week Was at work yesterday, so didn't fit in a post, but I'm easing you in gently :-)
Maybe catch you tomorrow?

Oh Oh!

Do you ever make some thing , stop and look and think oh oh! I did with this card! It was a bit plainer initially, less is more for men etc. My first glance at it gave the thought " good grief that looks like a tombstone!!" Hardly appropriate for my brother in laws birthday card! so a pile of embellishments were dragged out and it ended up like this. Still quite simple but not a gravestone in sight.
                              Although sadly I have made a real gravestone this week :-(
For Andrew's little Guinea pig Geoff, who we  said good bye to. He was lovely placid little guy, as you can see from a photo of him last summer. Lying on his back munching grass on my lap.
He is sorely missed by Andrew in particular, so  we may visit a local breeder to see if a new friend will heal his sadness. Not a replacement, because you never can, but a new friend to love.
Thanks for dropping by xx

Lots of birthdays!

I have made a pile of cards- some to use straight away- like this one. For my neighbour! This was swiftly followed by one for my brother in law. I was almost on the verge of buying cards for friends and family- but if I can't make time to do them a handmade card then I may as well throw the sissors away now. But that's not going to happen! So there!

Back to it!

Finally got my mojo back! Have lots to share, starting with this- a leaving gift. I've used lots of trims and embelishments from home decor as a reminder of working  with us in furnishings. Catch you soon x
